Enjoy the waves of tropical fruit intertwined delightfully with a creamy, velvety malt blend. Come get Loopy with us!

bomber from Capone’s. Had this on tap at Tap & Mallet in Rochester, NY and decided to try it again (though in a different medium). Tough to call this an "amber". Aroma of evergreen, pine resin, toffee, dry hops. Mouthfeel is very velvety, almost chewy. Taste is overwhelmingly oats, dry piney hops and bready malt. This reminds me of Victory Hop Devil in that the complexion of the beer is clearly good, yet I can’t get over the lingering mouth-drying effect. Overall, A decent beer from a great little city. Would probably have been better if complemented with food (burger, short ribs, etc). Nice label art as well.

bottle. some sediment in an amber beer under a small, creamy, stable, beige head. piney, resiny hop aroma with crystal malt sweetness. body is medium. flavors of green piney hops and moderate malt sweetness. its a hoppy amber/red ale. i love this style and i think even some more malt presence would not be out of order.

Poured from bottle. Tangy and fruity nose. Classic red ipa taste at first, but balanced with the oatmeal and malts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught at MacGregors. Brow-orange color, fine low head. Very fruity nose; cherry, orange, lemon. Very fruity flavor of cherry, orange, pineapple, grape. Earthy hops, some pine, nice bitterness. A strange but good fruitiness. Good beer.

ttutony (690) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2014
Hazy amber color in the glass. Holds a tan head nicely. Syrupy sweet aroma with pine and resin hop notes. Fairly bitter palate with crystal malt sweetness that lingers on the finish. Interesting beer, if not a slight bit heavy handed.

Cybercat (3435) - Georgia, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Pours a dark amber with a mahogany tone and a little bit of a buff head. Aroma has a strong overtone of evergreen hops, more like an IPA, with subtle fruity and malty notes. Hoppy flavor is not too fierce, not bitter, but still evergreen and malty and a little fruity. Texture is smooth and fairly fizzy. Get loopy - but not too loopy!

Cloudy amber color. Rich body and sufficient head. Balanced hop character in taste. Not unusual enough to buy again.
